You depend on your septic tank and field to process all the wastewater generated by your home. Failure to maintain and care for the septic tank could lead to discomfort and extensive and costly problems. Vietzke Trenchless is the leading provider of quality septic tank installation in Coeur d’Alene, ID. Here's what you need to know about preventable septic tank issues.

The Products You Use Could Cause Septic Tank Failure

If you routinely use antibacterial soaps, flush bleach down the drains or use antibacterial cleaners, you could cause premature failure of your septic tank. Luckily, our comprehensive range of septic tank services can help you address this issue.


Taking daily baths, running loads of laundry back to back, and doing similar activities that generate a lot of wastewater could overload your septic tank. If this happens, we can provide you with a septic tank replacement with more storage space for household wastewater.

Misuse of Your Drains

Even if you use septic-safe products, the items you use could still cause problems for your septic system. For example, pouring grease down the drain could eventually lead to a septic tank failure. If you use large wads of toilet paper or flush baby wipes, this could obstruct the pipes in your septic tank. Only use septic-safe products, and use as little of them as possible.


Avoid parking on the grass above the location of your septic tank. Don't dig in the septic tank's drain field. Plant trees and gardens well away from these areas. Infiltration of roots, extra pressure and pooling water could result in the tank's or pipe's collapse.
